Growth Appliances

Centuries ago, the human face was forward-grown and had more space for the third set of molars. This made it easier for teeth to remain straight and encouraged better airflow. The modern face has changed and gotten smaller, leading to more tooth crowding or breathing difficulties. If this becomes a serious issue for you, growth appliances from Dental Healing Arts could help.
